Clint Mansell & The Kronos Quartet // The Last Man 

So I watched The Fountain earlier this week, which was a pretty whatever movie. Despite being visually stunning, the movie suffered from a case of trying-too-hard, which, at least in my opinion, led to its lack of real substance. It was just so all over the place, it was hard to pull any significant meaning from it and feel truly moved by its many themes. 

The Fountain - The Tree of Life

That being said, the movie was beautifully made. In addition, Clint Mansell did a fabulous job with the soundtrack, and I’ve been listening to it non-stop as the perfect background music to the rain and fog passing through San Francisco. This song in particular just has such a haunting quality to it, a sadness that settles deep in my chest. 

I don’t know what it is about the rain that makes me silent, makes me drift away from the company of others and demand a certain level of distance, but tonight is definitely one of those stay-at-home-cook-frozen-pizza-and-watch-a-movie-alone-in-bed kind of nights.
